    Weekly Poetry Contest (95) Voting - Limericks

    Discussion in 'Bi-Weekly Poetry Contest Archives' started by Banzai, Sep 12, 2009.

    Weekly
    Poetry Contest
    Ninety Five
    Voting



    The contest is closed, and voting shall now commence!

    This week's theme is: Limericks

    Voting will end on Monday 14th September 2009.

    Voting for yourself is entirely at your own discretion. I'm frankly sick of discussion on the matter, so any in here will be deleted. If you want to vote for yourself, go for it, but I personally wouldn't do that unless I genuinely believed mine was the best.


    The winning poem will be stickied for a week in the poetry contest.



    Oh, and if I catch anyone cheating, their entry will be removed from the contest and you will be unable to enter a poem into the contest for a month. Sorry to be such an ogre about this, I don't want to be, but rules are rules and are in place for valid reasons. If you can not follow the rules, you face the consequences.

    There is no prize to be won here, you can not claim you are an award winning poet, so as you can see, cheating really is pointless here!

    Best of luck to all entrants, and happy voting.


    Banzai


    IMPORTANT NOTE: I'm afraid, due to leftover restrictions in place from the 50th Short Story Contest, some of our more recent members may find themselves unable to vote. I am aware of this problem, but unfortunately only Daniel can resolve it. So until he does, I apologise for any inconvenience.

    Why won't the baby take the breast?
    Doesn't she know I need to rest?
    This should be so easy,
    So simple and breezy,
    Eat already, I'm done with this test.

    My Plight
    By Evelyanin


    I didn't have to give a fight
    The pants were just a little tight
    Yet my choice I regret
    Bending under the net
    While I played badminton last night

    Bombo Jim
    By rover


    Bombo the baby was spindly thin,
    But fat and gluttony deep within.
    Little Bombo played with toys,
    Little Bombo ate little boys,
    Chucking their bones in random bins.

    Pearly Whites
    By Afterburner


    This fine day I met a fellow.
    He was real simple and mellow.
    We talked for a while,
    Then he formed a smile,
    But his teeth were all stained yellow.

    You Don't Say!
    By Cogito


    There was a young boisterous buck
    with a penchant for pushing his luck
    He attempted to linger
    with a red headed singer
    and encountered the grill of her truck

    Lonely Man
    By K~la


    A lonely man raced to the mall
    to find himself a blow up doll.
    Real girls were too hard to find
    Around them he could not unwind
    Or work up the nerve to call.

    By Marshall41


    Daisy Higher, a fabulous diver
    Boasted from her higher diver pyre
    “Better than you I will do”
    And so she did, so she flew
    Into a pool that could be no dryer.

    A True Story
    By Hazel Eyed Scribe


    My aunt Nancy is kinda a nut,
    Who says, “Go without underwear and strut.”
    So I thought, “That’d be easy!”
    But I didn’t figure it’d be breezy,
    ‘Cause sure enough, I exposed my butt!

    Child's Play
    By deep breath


    The kid plays many a game,
    Neither for glory nor for fame.
    She falls and gets up again-
    Won't be subdued by the pain.
    Grown ups...Time to learn the same!

    Tale of the Time Lord.
    By Xeno


    There once was an alien physician,
    Who was a little upset at his position,
    He needed to kill,
    But had not the will,
    Preferring to fight with cognition.

    So now the alien physician,
    Took on a dangerous mission,
    Avoided the fight,
    But instead took flight,
    To stop some nuclear fission.

    But then the alien physician,
    Found himself in bad condition,
    Broken and bruised,
    His body abused,
    He began to start the transition.

    For you see, this physician could cheat,
    As he lit up the darkened street,
    A brand new face,
    In the same old place,
    A man who could never be beat.

    So now The Doctor lives on,
    His battle finally won,
    Sat in his seat,
    Resting his feet,
    Wondering where his TARDIS had gone.

    My Limerick
    By payelK

    My rhyme schemes make me sick,
    I never know which words to pick.
    Middle lines are even worse
    with constant lack of proper verse.
    So I feel like a complete nut, when it comes to limerick.
